“First time fishing.... defo not the last!!!!!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Many thanks to you all. Your kiosk is easy to find and it was easy to book. The 4hr fishing trip was booked for 1 adult, 4 teenagers and 1 child and 3 of the teenagers hadn't fished before! (Mums went shopping instead)!! I wasn't quite sure what to expect, only "The ones that got away" tale from our returning sea-farers...... but NO!!!! The boys/men fetched home a bounty of fish!!! They'd all got stuck in and were taken to the best "fishing holes". They all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were pleased as punch with their whole experience, so much so, half of them went again the next day (home for the rest of us, but only after we'd had a massive fish supper)!!!!!!!!

“pleasant boat trip”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

If you want to see some of the Anglesey coast line and Puffin Island, the one hour boat trip on the Sea Princess is well worth your time. We learnt some of the history of the area as we passed places of interest; at the island we were lucky enough to see seals popping their heads up. No Puffins sadly, but quite a few other sea birds, which were identified for us by the Captain whose sense of humour was much appreciated!

Book all pleasure cruises at the Starida - (blue) kiosk by Beaumaris pier during the summer months or telephone 01248 810251. Parking is right on the front by the water, on what they call the 'Green' which cost £3.

Thanks for the review and glad you enjoyed your time on the Island Princess with us! To be sure of seeing the puffins, May to mid-July is the best time of year, so what better encouragement do you need to return next year ;)

“Superb trip to Puffin Island”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Just returned back to our holiday cottage after a trip out to Puffin Island on the Princess. The trip was fantastic and the evening setting sun paved a backdrop which was sublime. We loved every minute of it (my wife and twin boys), enjoying each moment on the boat. We even managed to see some seals which was great. The kids loved it. Stan? and Dylan were great hosts and made us laugh at some of the banter which made for a very enjoyable trip. The chap at the kiosk when we booked also provided us with some local knowledge which was appreciated (Gareth?). Take a jacket though as it does get a little choppy out there on the water, even when it's warm! This is the best money we've spent on many activities on Anglesey and which we thought was excellent value for money. Highly recommended. We'd definitely do it again. 10/10.

“Fantastic trip for the whole family!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Had a brilliant trip round Puffin Island, got to see lots of seals and different birds. All the local landmarks were pointed out with a great recorded commentary and also the extensive knowledge of the captain.

“Lovely trip for the whole family!!!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Was encouraged by the friendly kiosk person to try the trip, so I took the family and we all thoroughly enjoyed it, got to see seals and a huge variety of native birds at Puffin Island helped along a brill commentary by the captain. The boat was stable and nothing distracted from the relaxing and informative trip.
